    The Minnesota Vikings have their sights set on the postseason. Kirk Cousins and company are playing at a high level right now heading into Week 13. However, wide receiver Adam Thielen has been banged over the past few weeks as he deals with a hamstring injury. As a result, his status for this week’s matchup against the Seattle Seahawks has been put in doubt.

    According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Thielen is considered questionable for the showdown with the Seahawks on Monday Night Football.

    Absent for four weeks since coming back too quickly from a hamstring injury against the Chiefs, Vikings receiver Adam Thielen could be back in the lineup on Monday night in Seattle.

    Thielen officially is listed as questionable for the showdown between the 8-3 Vikings and 9-2 Seahawks.

    This will be a big game for both the Vikings and Seahawks as they try to prove their work as two of the elite teams in the NFC. Even without Thielen, Minnesota has played well. As well as that, it has gotten back into the title contender conversation after a rocky start to the season.

    In eight games played this season, Thielen has caught six touchdown passes and rushed for two more. His impact has been considerable even though the team has played fine without him downfield as a target for Cousins. Thielen also has a total of 27 receptions for 391 receiving yards.

    The Vikings have won six of their last seven games coming into this matchup and will be looking to continue their winning ways against a very good Seahawks team led by Russell Wilson.
